Dear Glenn.

Though I agree that the nation owes minorities a debt, That doesn't mean you can take jobs from the people who are qualified and give them to someone else because of their skin or ethnicity, etc.

Point is I just dont wan't anyone, minorities and majorities alike to be treated less equally. I'm not saying that we should stop giving job to minorities. Just that everyone should have an equal chance. Besides unemployment rates are bad no matter what. And Affirmative Action is the #3 cause of unemployment(among majorities). I want the people that worked hard to get an education, and worked hard to make something of themselves to get the jobs. In other me....RACE HAS NO PLACE IN THE WORKPLACE....

The only way to achieve TRUE EQUALITY is for the door to swing both ways. To give a person a job because of the colour of his skin is as wrong as to refuse to hire a man or woman just because they are a negro or a hispanic.

I'm more concerned with rights for those who are crippled and women than I am, any colour of a healthy man, as I believe those with deformities and women are the victims of terrible bigotry in this country even in these enlightened times.

The only "equality" that really matters is "ECONOMIC EQUALITY". Without this no other equality matters. Therefore, you must break the monopoly the old rich ruling families, from the establishment gentry, have on the wealth of this country. Then redistribute that wealth anoung the common people to create TRUE ECONOMIC EQUALITY.
0therwise all the talk about equality and brotherhood is just useless chatter.
